I got bit by Maple when I tried to combine a number of 2-d plots into one 3-d plot, using plottools:-transform to space the plots out in the third dimentsion. I have done such things before. This time, the first time I executed the final plot statement the GUI got clobbered and somehow also the whole worksheet (I may have saved it). Now, when I load it nothing shows up and worse, I cannot enter anything in the worksheet, it is completely screwy. I looked at the XML code in Emacs and it validates and I cannot find anything obviously wrong with it, i.e. no dangling tags or similar.
I used Maple 2017. In Maple 2015 the same worksheet overprints itself & makes a big mess on the screen. It is similarly unuseable.
Can one of the experts have a look at this? Although rare I have experienced similar issues on occasion before & would like to know how to get this into a sane state.
